“When my husband and I were searching for a Toronto employment lawyer for the first time in our life. We were very frustrated as there were so many employment lawyers out there and didn’t know where to go. I carefully read many reviews and success rates and made our choice to with Mr. Miguel Mangalindan at Monkhouse Law and we were very correct on our decision made. He was very kind, easy to deal with and yet remained professional with lots of knowledge with good employment law advice and recommendations. We sure won the case and received the settlement to the point we wanted (or more I should say). It was very well worth hiring Mr. Mangalindan as our employment lawyer. As we won’t be in any kind of dispute ever again, if we do in the future, I know where to go and who to deal with. I strongly recommend Miguel and his team for your employment law dispute case!” – EY
